If you follow me on twitter, you know that I’ve been anticipating the Republican attack on the Obama vacation by pointing out what Bush was doing 8 years ago (ignoring the PDB) or Cheney was doing 7 years ago (claiming Iraq was close to having nukes). So I want to give Andrea Mitchell kudos for–as I hoped reporters would do yesterday–calling out this bogus attack.
And KO’s take on this last night might as well have been a "best of" emptywheel’s "brush clearing" tweets.
We’ll see more of this attack in the mere 10 days that Obama is taking away from DC. May the rest of the press corpse dismiss it with at least as much disdain as Mitchell mustered.
